Larmer Tree Festival: Last Few Tickets Remaining!

14th – 18th July – Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire/Dorset border

Larmer Tree Festival directors are pleased to announce that this year’s 20th anniversary event is extremely close to selling out. There are currently only a limited number of four-day, three-day, Thursday and Sunday tickets available, (having already sold out of five-day tickets and day tickets for Wednesday, Friday and Saturday).

Thursday 15th July sees a hugely diverse array of acts hitting the various stages across the stunning Larmer Tree Gardens. The line-up includes hugely influential blues guitarist and contemporary of Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Green Day tour mate and rising acoustic punk/folk story-teller Frank Turner, New York based party-starting reggae outfit Easy Star All-Stars and headlining the Comedy Club, Rich Hall.

Sunday 18th July, the final day of the five day spectacular, will be closed in style by the likes of folk-rocker Martha Wainwright, highly regarded Geordie folksters The Unthanks and festival favourite Ade Edmondson and the Bad Shepherds. A huge collection of rising acts will also take to the stage, in the form of Gorillaz collaborators Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, folk-tronica soloist James Yuill, NME favourites Goldheart Assembly and Comedy Club headliner, Jon Richardson.

The weekend is set to prove why Larmer Tree Festival has remained one of the area’s most vibrant and well-loved events by providing a rich programme of music, comedy, theatre, art, film, workshops and talks for all ages. Winners of the Best Family Festival at the UK Festival Awards 2008, Larmer Tree is dedicated to offering audiences more for their money than any other festival.

Festival Founder and Co-Director James Shepard says: “We are so happy that once again we are on target to sell out in advance of the festival. We feel that we have an extremely impressive line-up of acts this year. Having seen their Glastonbury appearance, I simply cannot wait to see Toots and the Maytals! Obviously we’re over the moon at having Jools Holland back for another year and him bringing Alison Moyet as his special guest really is the icing on the cake!”

The weekend line-up also features Toumani Diabate, Oysterband, Shooglenifty, Cornershop, Chumbawamba and Tunng. The Comedy Club is headed up by Russell Howard, Rich Hall, David O’Doherty and Jon Richardson, with many other huge and rising names on the UK circuit ready to leave festival goer’s sides suitably split!

BBC film critic Mark Kermode will also be on hand for the first Mark Kermode’s Film Club in which he will be introducing and showing some of his all time favourite films. The programme includes the silent movie Beggars of Life, for which Mark’s band The Dodge Brothers will provide a live musical accompaniment. With impromptu street theatre bursting out of all areas of the festival site, art colourfully decorating the whole gardens, as well as a diverse programme of activities and workshops, this year is set to be the biggest and best event in the festival’s 20 year history!

Tickets are available now from www.larmertreefestival.co.uk.
